HC Deb 08 October 1924 vol 177 c521W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he is aware that the pensions of Indian service officers enjoy a smaller increase in respect of increased cost of living than those of British service officers as compared with 1919; and whether it is intended to place both services on the same footing in this respect?


In considering the reduction of Indian service military pensions my Noble Friend is taking account of the fact that the increase in 1919 on account of the Cost of living was not uniformly the same for both services.
